Jason’s Deadly…

Standard

Image

It all started when my mom told me that Jason’s Deli had come out and taken a stand against GMO ingredients, with declarations on their menu… I responded that it was great to see a fast-food restaurant chain who could boldly go where no corporation has gone before… When the time came to actually go to lunch there, I began to survey the menu with one eyebrow raised…

Everything on the menu contained some form of genetically modified ingredient! I was very disappointed, though I did see that their menu proclaimed some Gluten-Free options, and it said their food was, “Really Natural”… (what the hell does THAT mean?) But rather than walk out and ruin a lunch with mom, I asked the person taking my order if there was any NON-GMO options…

She looked at me with that look… I repeated the words, and then changed it to GENETICALLY MODIFIED, and she just pointed to the manager who was already on the way… I must say that the manager was an extremely nice person, to listen to me explain that I don’t want their toxic modified food in my body, under any circumstances… She assured me the beef and chicken they serve are, “Very healthy” and that they don’t use corn syrup… I explained to her that even one GMO-DNA from BT-soy could forever change my genetic structure… To her credit, she never lost her composure… The boss of this particular place of hospitality was desperately uninformed, though she promised to pass my message along up the chain of command…

I ordered the least offensive item on the menu, but won’t say what, because I can’t certify it as clean… Yet I also practice mindful eating, which means that if I sit down to dine with family, I am stress-free and chewing 50 times per bite! My mother mentioned my handling of the situation, and I thanked her that she raised me with some conscience , as well as cojones… We had a good discussion, and I didn’t want to rock her world, as Jason’s is one of her favorite places to go out and eat… In the course of the meal, I proposed a new piece of art, Jason’s Deadly… Her response was that I should visit the website on the napkin holder: http://jasonsdelifeedback.com

So I did… It was a very narrow-minded process that channeled me through a series of questions, and never asking me the one I wanted to answer: “Does your menu have GMO’s?” Nevertheless, at the end there was a box to leave my own words, so I gave it to them… Expressing the sentiment of a paying customer, I informed them of my disappointment that that hadn’t taken a stand against GMO’s, and my shock and disgust that they weren’t properly labeled as such… Then I notified them that until they changed their policy, I would never again be spending dollars in their restaurant… Finally, I offered the Artists Against Monsanto email for them to reply to, and OF COURSE THEY REPLIED THE VERY NEXT MORNING!!! Here is that reply:

Good afternoon,

Our purchasing and R&D teams are continuously looking for better quality and more sustainable foods for us to serve. We are also constantly questioning the ingredients we utilize from our suppliers and pushing them to be better.

 As a restaurant company with 240+ Jason’s Delis nationwide, we rely on some manufacturers to ensure consistency and availability across the country. As you mentioned – there are so many foods containing additives derived from soy and corn such as xanthan gum and ascorbic acid it can be difficult to determine those with and with out GMO’s in them.

With our large menu, we do not yet have ingredient statements for all our menu items – we are working on this project now and hope to have it finished in the next few months. If you have any specific menu items you were interested in, please let me know and I will look into them and see if they contain any GMO’s. I can tell you our Organic Wheat Wrap and our Antibiotic Free Chicken are GMO free along with our organic items on the Salad Bar.

I also want to assure you that we continue to be free of artificial trans fats, msg, high fructose corn syrup and artificial dyes & colors. All this is in our continued pursuit to serve the best quality foods we can.

Our guests’ questions continuously help us become better as a company! Thank you for your interest in us and our future.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly if I may be of further assistance.

I replied:

Kim,

Thanks for the response… If your chicken is GMO-Free then I want to see it labeled as such… Many factors play into whether they are safe for human consumption, such as what the animals are fed as well as their living conditions… Until Jason’s reverses its approach to GMO food and the labeling of such, it won’t be going into my mouth, or the mouths of those who I can convince to not put it in their bodies…

Thanks,

(Also, I should mention that it’s not only THESE guys who are dealing in bad food, it is the entire industry… This art grew from my personal experience, though also you may notice both signatures! Thanks to Artie Xia for the added style and flavor…)

The Phantom Zone…

Standard

Whenever I think of the crisis on planet earth regarding our genetically tainted food supply, I have to brainstorm for solutions… I see how once we all realize GMO’s are no good for us, we’ll have to all figure out how to dispose of them… We wouldn’t want to just till up the bad genes right into the soil, as this could have longer lasting ramifications within nature’s delicate balance… Burning seems ludicrous due to the airbourne nightmares it would create, although I admit it is an appealing idea, if you need drama and climax…

What do we do with the tainted people? The Clarence Thomases, the Michael Taylors, the Bill Gates type of folks? Here’s a proposal: We create a Phantom Zone like in Superman… Krypton knew how to deal with its own genocidal maniacs, and we could take a lesson from them… Here’s how I think it would look!

Image

Deep down, though, I do feel that no one is damned, no matter what atrocities they commit… I know that may be radical thinking, but when I picture a better world, I have to include room for those ‘evil’ folks to evolve and grow too… Only when we are ALL on board with healing this planet can we begin to build a new today… Until then, send the schmucks to the Phantom Zone!!

King Kong Against Monsanto…

Standard

Today has simply been a King Kong day… Maybe the colossal ape is a symbol of the people of earth rising up together, banning GMO’s and living more at peace with the animal kingdom? Hmmm… Possibly, or maybe it’s Kong who’s been modified, and he is really pissed about that!

Image

Can you empathize with this poor monster? Society just wants him to entertain, or die…

The first King Kong anti-gmo image I made today was Kong in a corn field… Here it is:

Image

The stuff is bad… Monsanto bad… Biotech bad… If Kong could tell us he’d say go back to nature and ask what to do… He doesn’t even want to devour us, since we are far too polluted!

Dazed And Corn-fused…

Standard

Watch out for horizontal gene transfer from eating GMO foods… Horizontal gene transfer, best I can understand with my artist’s brain, is like a cross-pollination among your genes. Like, the DNA inside you sees a strand of DNA it’s never laid eyes on before, and instantly chooses to emulate it… And if you think that means you’ll have super powers like The X-Men, hah! More like The Tumor League Of America…

Image

Are you dazed and corn-fused? It would be better to eat nothing at all, than to suffer this cruel and unusual experiment that Monsanto and the FDA are running on us…

Good luck, stay organic, and for Gene’s sakes, spread the word… We are near the tipping point!

‘V’ For Vanillin…

Standard

Vanillin is some nasty shite, folks… Artificial and fake, toxic and rude… Here’s a blurb I found:

Gene technology

Today, vanilla predominantly is won from debris of the pulp industry.

  • A technique has been developed to produce it with help of GM microorganisms. No detailed information is available about the commercial use of this procedure.

Labelling: it may be assumed that vanilla is not subject to a labelling requirement if the production takes place with help of GM microorganisms.

Hence the artwork:

So if you have to have a sweet thing, make sure it’s real food, and not some cancer agent…

TIME OUT, MONSANTO…

Standard

When the tides turn, Monsanto’s days will surely be numbered… When the crops fail, or when people begin dying in mass amounts… Truth will spill out like it is now, and abusive corporations will be called to account for their past actions… This is inevitable… Thus, in the interest of helping that along, here is a prophetic image I made…

Image

The greatest irony of all, in my opinion, is that the perpetrators of these evil deeds will be rounded up! Get it? Round-Up is the pillar of Monsanto’s profits, and the poisoner of the people…

Neither Simple Nor Straight?

Standard

Monsanto recently held its 2012 Annual Investors meeting, where the first words you read, and I quote:

“The path to a more sustainable future is neither simple nor straight…”

This seems outrageous, coming from the company that created so many genocidal agents, which monopolizes the seed-supply by buying up its competitors, and who sends Blackwater’s private security forces onto American soil to police farmers who are the victim of cross-pollination…

Shame on you, Monsanto! The path to a more sustainable future is VERY simple and EXTREMELY straight! The path to any future at all involves REMOVING you! Banning, imprisoning, eradicating, undoing, exiling, and eventually forgetting you ever existed…

Simple Nor Straight...

I haven’t yet had a chance to read the report that this quote comes from, as I can only handle small doses of Monsanto’s lies and greed… But here is a link for you, so you can get a feeling of how blatant these corporate terrorists are:

Monsanto 2012 Annual Report

Do the right thing! Send a letter, burn a field, hassle a grocery store manager… All actions may help preserve the food supply for another day, which gives us time to wake the sheeping masses and prepare for the worst…
